Earth is an amazing natural detoxifier and mineralizer.
Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is not actually “earth” but is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one-celled plants called diatoms (similar to spirulina). When taken internally, many health benefits have been observed. The biggest and most well researched benefits have been lower cholesterol, lowering of blood pressure, relief from arthritis pain, increased energy, more regular bowel movements and smoother complexion.
(Coupled with lower blood pressure, this study done by the University of Innsbruck in Austria found that DE reduces blood cholesterol and positively influence lipid metabolism in people.)
Years ago the silica in our food was adequate, but with today’s hybrids and depleted soils, only about 1/3 of the silica needed is supplied in our food. Diatomaceous Earth is a simple and inexpensive way to get the vital mineral silica your body needs.
Silica is the most plentiful element on earth, following oxygen, but there are very few foods that contain an adequate amount to supply the quantity your body’s needs. Silica is crucial to bones, tendons, skin, cartilage and blood vessels. Silica is even located in the blood itself and important organs such as the liver, heart, and lungs. The average human body holds approximately 7 grams of silica, a quantity far exceeding the figures for other important minerals such as iron.
It is as important to provide the body dietary sources of Silica early in life as it is during the aging process when Silica levels in tissue usually drop off steeply. Silica plays an important role in many body functions. Silica has an exact absolute influence on absorption of all minerals that the body requires to maintain health. It adds to the quality of life! Silica does not accumulate in the body; it is water-soluble, is easily absorbed by the intestinal wall and rapidly excreted, so daily consumption is important.
As a daily supplement, many believe that its most beneficial use is for internal cleansing by aiding in the elimination of intestinal parasites, which are not able to develop immunity to the mechanical action of DE. DE can also detox the body. According to a top cancer researcher, it is also the best natural chelating product available for pulling, viruses, bacteria, free radicals and heavy metals from the bloodstream.
Known benefits of amorphous silica:
Stimulates cell metabolism and cell formation.
Inhibits the aging process in tissues necessary for the structure and functioning of connective tissue.
Strengthens and stimulates the immune system.
Silica is important for the development of healthy nails and hair and regular intake can stop unnecessary hair loss.
Strengthens and stimulates the vascular system; lowers blood pressure and improves the condition called arteriosclerosis. Increases elasticity and firmness of the blood vessels.
Silica is indispensable for the elasticity of lung tissue and, therefore, is a basic therapy for lung and respiratory disorders. Dissolves excess weight and keeps bad cholesterol levels down
